Paragraph 58

Article 72 The restrictions on activities of observers in Article 70.2 should also apply to media. There should also be rules to prevent a polling station being "packed" by media representatives, especially from a single paper/broadcasting outlet. Therefore, 72.5 should be amended to limit any media to a maximum of 2 persons present at the same time. Moreover, the PEC should be allowed to establish, prior to the opening of the poll, a maximum number of media (with a minimum of 4 or 5); if more media seek attendance, those allowed to be present should be determined by lot.
